I have one set I purchased marked as an "oil pencil" As far as I can tell it appears to be the same product as this one. What I got was a moderately soft core pencil. Nothing overly exciting on the first impression. That was until I went though some playing around and experimenting.
They all seem to be water soluble. When the tips are dipped in water, they have a slight oil pastel like feeling. I am guessing this may be why the words "oil pencil" may be appearing in some descriptions. The wet down color fades a bit when spread and doesn't go as far as a true watercolor pencil. That may explain the water soluble part. This is not a feature I've found unique to these pencils. I've found it with various colors in other relatively cheap colored pencils and in some Prismocolor pigments. These do really well with the effect and are consistent along the whole range of colors. Other brands, this find appears to be a bonus limited to some pigments, and not as strong of an effect as these. The effect overall reminds me of a harder version of the Neocolor II water soluble wax/oil pastels. To get the most out of these a water based marker blender is a better option to a soft paint brush.
The Pencils I got are marked in the 7100 series, silver with a silver box. They aren't color labeled, but have numbers 501-572. They go from white to cream to orange, red, light flesh tones, light purple, magenta, mid purple, blue to green, earth to dark flesh tones and neutrals to black at the end. The last two 571 and 572 are silver and gold. It helps greatly to make a color chart when figuring out which color is what, regardless of the color indicator on the pencil. As for color names, there seems to be a lot of interpretation based on the seller.
Anyways my experience with them. I did not get them at a discount or given to me. I just happened to see glowing reviews and thought I'd try them myself to see how they stacked up to my more expensive pencils. I have Prismacolors, Pablo, and Polychromos colored pencils (open stock). I also have a couple Irojiten pencils.
Overall conclusion: I still prefer polychromos, Irojiten and Pablo over these for dry point coloring and serious artwork. They have a smoother coverage, less drag on the paper, less crumbling as I color and overall more control with shading and layering. The more expensive pencils are also marketed as lightfast. These pencils don't seem very clear on their lightfast values. Local art stores may sell the more expensive pencils as open stock, making replacing used colors easier. Also sharpening: The more expensive pencils work well with both electric sharpening and hand held. I've found the points on these to be a bit brittle for electric sharpening. They point well, but it tends to break with pressure. Hand held sharpening gives these a shorter but still sharp point, (depending on the sharpener) and makes controlling these much easier.
These pencils have their use for coloring books and sketchbook doodling. I can get interesting effects with them by dipping their tips in water or going over with a water based marker blender (tombow). They appear to have minimal bleed through. This makes them useful for double sided coloring books. They also have a great bargain price point. Color range is also decent. There are a lot of greens and pinks.
